Calling all Tasmanian Sculptors

Forest Secrets Sculpture Trail

Announcing our new competition, to be exhibited March 2017

At Forest Secrets we are gradually establishing a sculpture trail as a complementary component of our unique Tassie Forest themed sensory trail.

Thanks to generous sponsorship by Norske Skog/Boyer Paper Mill  we're now able to offer some great prizes for our first Tas Forest Sculpture Competition and exhibition.

When you visit Forest Secrets during March next year  you will get to see the competition entries, and vote for the $1,000 People's Choice Award.

Even better,  if you're an artist with a talent or passion for outdoor sculpture, you could be competing for the prize yourself. And there's another great prize on offer too. All sculptors, from budding artists and first-timers to the well-bloomed and famous, are welcome to apply to compete and exhibit.
